    I have a 2002 2.0 se executive accord 20b6 engine. My question is as follows

    This car is my wifes and has only covered 38,000 since new.
    It has never had the timing belt replaced and i am now considering putting it into my local Honda dealer to get it replaced. Should i also get the water pump and tensioner replaced as well or because it has a low mileage should i just get the belt replaced.

    Any help appreciated.

    Hi and welcome to AOC have a look at this thread The definitive Honda Accord Timing belt -Chain maintenance schedules

    Since your car is 2002 model it should have been replaced in 2010 so three year over due so yes please get it changed. As for the water pump make a call on the movement and play when its disassembled but would recommend to change the coolant too.
